Triangle 20th Meetup - Saturday, July 13th

It has been almost 20 years since the first post on MeFi, so what an opportune time to get together here in the Triangle of North Carolina! Maybe we can even make this a regional thing and lure some MeFites down from the mountains, off the Outer Banks, and "y'all too, Fort Bragg!" Let's start a discussion in this thread about where, when, and what we want to do in general terms before we nail down the details. [more inside]

NC State Farmers Market Meetup

Let's have a meetup at the North Carolina State Farmers' Market in Raleigh! I'm proposing a breakfast / brunch meetup at the State Farmers' Market Restaurant, which as you can tell from their URL, prides themselves on their biscuits. Afterwards folks can check out the Farmers' Market for produce, baked goods, and plants. There's also the Nahunta Pork Outlet for those interested in pork products.

Chuy's for the cheese

Research Monkey set me up for this, and we haven't had a meetup since ignignokt and metroid_baby visited, so let's see if we can do it. Lunch or dinner at the Chuy's in Cary (or Apex, or Morrisville, who can really tell these days?) at the shopping megacomplex off US-55 and US-540. As incentive: I have a coupon for a free, uh, serving thingy of queso. Not sure if it's still good since it's over a year old and kind of beaten up from riding in my wallet the whole time, but let's try it anyway. [more inside]

Triangle "Kedi" showing weekend of March 10?

Anyone else excited to see Kedi, the new documentary about street cats in Istanbul, (currently at 100/85 on RT)? It starts at the Rialto in Raleigh on March 10 and seems perfect for a meetup. Durham or Chapel Hill theaters showing it could work if that's better for folks. Maybe include a stop for appetizers before or drinks after? It's all questions at this point, except for the kitties, which are solid.

Trivia night at the Pinhook in Durham

The recent weather here in the Triangle has me wanting to get out of the house more and get to know some of my fellow local MeFites better. Would people be interested in going to a trivia night somewhere? I hear the Wednesday night Bull McCabes trivia is good, though I haven't been before. [more inside]

Triangle 15th Anniversary Meetup

Hey, it's been too long, and we should celebrate the big 1-5 in style. I'm thinking dinner somewhere and then casual drinks nearby for people who want to join up after dinner. I'm suggesting Raleigh because that's closest to me, but we could certainly do it elsewhere in the Triangle if that works better for people. [more inside]

Durham Bulls Game Meetup

Let's plan a meetup at a Durham Bulls game for some time in May or June [May 4, Star Wars Night]. It's minor-league baseball, so the prices are low: The most expensive tickets are $30 (our will be in the $10 range), real pints of local craft beers are $5-7, and most concession food is in the $1-5 range. At the same time, the team is AAA, meaning the players are good enough to be only one step away from the Major Leagues, as demonstrated in detail in that great documentary film Bull Durham. Scheduling and booking details inside. [more inside]

Let's go to China in the Paris of the Piedmont

I've been memailing mediareport about it, and we both agree that we need to have another meetup in March. I was thinking Gourmet Kingdom would be a great option because it's quiet during the week (meaning not quiet on Fri/Sat), it has a challenging/intimidating/exciting/fun Szechuan menu (attn: vegetarians: the braised eggplant is amazing!), and it's in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro part of the triangle, thus satisfying the "our turn" part of the rotation. There's ample parking, and plenty of nearby watering holes for afterwards should we want to maintain conversational momentum like last time in Raleigh. Would any Thursdays in March be bad for anyone? What Thursdays work best for you in March? What Thursdays work worst for you in March? Why wouldn't you want to meet up on a Thursday? What is it about those damned Thursdays? Do you know anybody named Thursday? Are they coming? Would they be embarrassed?

Meetup in Durham for food and drinks and good cheer

I had a blast at the Raleigh meetup half an eternity ago, and I figured it was time for another triangle meetup. I'm thinking sometime in mid-February, perhaps the 9th or the 16th? Please suggest your favourite joint for hanging out! We'll be at the Bull City Burger and Brewery in Durham at 2 PM on February 17th! Be there or be a redditor.

Asheville, Saturday, May 7th & Sunday, May 8th

I'll be passing through Asheville on the evening of Sat, May 7th on my way to visit my brother in Ohio, and hiking in the area with a pal on Sunday May 8th. She wants to go someplace a bit out of the ordinary, if possible, and I'd like to see spring wildflowers and/or waterfalls, if possible. We'd almost certainly be up for drinks and food on Saturday or Sunday night as well - i.e., we'll be out and about and would totally love to have MeFite company. Anyone interested in a day hike and/or dinner? Queer bar recommendations welcome, too.

We're moving to town and would like to meet the local mefites

Mrs. schyler523 and I are moving to the area in early February and it would be nice to have a nice pint and whatnot. We'll likely be too busy to hang out until the 15th or so, but any date after that is probably fine. We're familiar with Jack of the Wood (our favorite bar) and the beergarden, but other ideas would be welcomed.

Recent Work by Felicity Green at the De Soto Lounge

Mostly photographs, maybe some drawings and paintings. The opening will run from 5:30 on Thursday, August 26 until god knows when. Come early if you wish to eat cheese cubes. Drink specials at the bar - if you do not know the De Soto, it is in the Eldorado building right off 240 on Haywood Rd, next to the Blue Ribbon. It's a great divey bar with a wonderful jukebox. The show will be up through the end of September. Hope to see you there!
